---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Mon, 3 Mar 2008 20:13:15 +1300 From: "Greg and Rachel Barclay" <barclay1 at xtra.co.nz> Subject: different bottle sizes Hi everyone. I have a question that hopefully someone out there=20 can shed some light on. I brew basic partial mash ales. My latest=20 effort was bottled using both 500ml and 330ml bottles. What I=20 have noticed is that the larger bottles have a slight but distinctly=20 sharper bitterness/hop taste too them when compared to the=20 330ml bottles. I have used the combination of bottles before=20 and never noticed this. I used high alpha hops (green bullet and=20 super alpha =96 all I can get in New Zealand at present) both for=20 boiling, flavour and aroma. The only noticeable difference between=20 the bottles would be that I used 1 carbonation drop (sorry to the=20 purists) for each bottle. Can anyone tell me in layman=92s terms why=20 the flavour would be slightly different? Are my taste buds playing tricks on me? Cheers Greg No virus found in this outgoing message.
